The first Vette shown is Lance, from DFW. He went 203mph in the standing mile last October and has a hard-on to beat me in the 1/4 mile.

That's got to really suck to have that happen to your car.

via APS Twin Turbo's I assume? 203 in the standing mile is super fast for a vette.

No turbos. He has a built 600rwhp motor with a progressive N20 NANO system. He's putting down ~800rwhp.

It is a system that you intregrate in your nitrous set up that keeps your pressure perfectly consistant.. No need for a No2 heater as well.. It's ready at all times.. One will be in the vette pretty soon..

The guy in the first vid was trying to blow it up (a BUNCH of nitrous on a stock bottom end) from what I've been told.

Watch the guy get the **** sprayed out of him (he's not on fire!) with the fire extinguisher... Maybe it's not funny - I'm just fairly tilted.
